Movie of the Year: 1984 – Gremlins (with Nate Ragolia!)

Movie of the Year: 1984

Gremlins (with Nate)

Can Gremlins transform into our 1984 Movie of the Year?

Picture a Gremlin. I’ll wait. OK, so what you pictured was a Mogwai, which is why it’s so important that we made this episode to help remind people of the particulars of Gremlins and the rules and such.

In 1984, we learned that mankind—and to a lesser extent, womankind (thanks for the misogyny, 1984!)—was not ready for the Mogwai yet. I am assuming after forty years, we have done what it takes to be worthy of these little guys. No?

We had to bring in friend of the show Nate to help us get to the heart of matters such as these. We also get into whether this movie might be better if one of the Gremlins was an elegant, sexual woman? Perhaps in a little Gremlin bikini? Let’s run it up old the flagpole and see which Gremlins salute.

Abortion is healthcare

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.

You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit
